CITY OF LOVE

IMG_5532
Hello San Francisco, the city of love and lights. The feeling I get every time I visit San Francisco is indescribable; the quaint streets, the chowders, the piers, oh I would love to live in this city if I could. I was in luck when I visited the Golden Gate Bridge as there was no fog at all. For the past 6 times I've visited the bridge, it was more of a view of the fog... Being in SF with my sisters and enjoying every bit of this city together, was just what I needed after not seeing them for almost 2 years. I will definitely be back again to explore more and create newer memories (like standing in the cold for the sunset until our noses turn red)..

TOP KNOT

IMG_5532
Turned my second-day hair into a top knot to solve the bad hair day disaster. California feels like home every time I return, 6th time now and the vibes are still the same. I guess it will never change as family's here. I would say this is a go-to outfit when you're just having one of those days, where there is just 'nothing to wear'. Grab a midi dress, a jacket, sneakers and you're ready to roll. Twist your hair up into a top knot just for that little extra extra! More updates are on my Instagram (@amebeverly), see you there! x

VENICE BEACH

IMG_5532

What makes being in the City of Angels more magical is definitely when you're there with your loved ones. After 5 trips to LA, I finally got to visit the colorful Venice Beach. Everything about it is so beautiful. The cloudless skies, turquoise waters, velvet sand and positive energy of this place made me fall so in love.
Wore the perfect playsuit to the beach, I was way too excited when Revolve sent me this romper, I had a hard time choosing between this or the Blue (yaaas it comes in 2 colors!). But knowing me, pink is always my choice. There's also a dress in the same pattern for those of you who are not big fans of rompers!

Can't wait to share more pictures with you but I'll be off for now! Enjoy the rest of the pictures and psssst! Revolve is having a sale!

YOUNG HEART

IMG_5532

Just a quick update on what I wore to Disney on Ice! If you've been following me for a long time now, you would've known that I'm a huge fangirl of everything Disney. I'm more into the classics, what about you? I've been going to Disney on Ice every year, a tradition that started when I was at my first show, at just 2 years old. So that is a lot of shows. To date, the magic still remains after all these years. I hope this outfit gives you some inspiration if you're visiting any Disney park soon!

WEEKEND WEAR: WIDE LEG PANTS

IMG_5532
Ahoy ahoy! Going back to the '70s and getting inspired with the wider silhouettes. The high-waisted cut plus the vertical stripes creates the illusion that you're oh-so-tall. Who says only shorts are allowed to the beach? Give your beach outfits an upgrade and ditch the denim cut-offs + flip flop combo. Go for a loose button down shirt, slip on sandals and never forget the straw hat! Now you're ready to soak up some sun, sand and sea! x

SURFIN'

IMG_5532
Who agrees with me that gladiators are the next best thing for dress-down days? It's like an upgrade to your outfit: ditch the flip flops + invest in a pair of lace-up glads = you're good to go. Here's another look with these gladiators! I'm definitely a sucker for anything lace up. My mom just got me the prettiest pair of lace-up flats ever and I can't wait to share it here. In the meantime, I'm counting down the days to my next big adventure with Dan. Guess where we're headed to next? x

LACE DRESS

IMG_5532
Evening strolls along Chatuchak Park wearing the perfect dress for picnics and garden parties; it was love at first sight when I saw this on Revolve Clothing. I matched it with rust tones and I fell in love even more. I swear Tularosa carries the prettiest clothing ever. I don't like overpacking when I travel, so bringing dresses are the way to go! If your closet lacks dresses like mine, Revolve Clothing carries hundreds of dresses for you to go crazy over, you can thank me later ;)

A LEAP LOVE

IMG_5532
It's an hour past midnight, I've been itching to write this post for the longest time. I've always been writing about traveling, outfits, favourites and bits and bobs, but today's post is dedicated to the love of my life, Dan.

It was 1 week into college, everything was going smoothly and everyone has made friends in class. I was happy, with my new found friends thinking that these are the people I will be hanging out with, for the next 3 years in college. All those thoughts poofed into thin air when the lecturer unexpectedly informed me that I was needed to transfer to another class immediately. I felt crushed, "Great, why now? Right when everyone has already made friends."

Little did I know that a great friendship was about to begin. I followed the lecturer to the new class, who then explained that I was joining them for the rest of the year. Let's fast forward the awkward introduction. My new lecturer then said to the curly-haired boy standing next to me, "Dan, don't bully the new girl!" I looked over my shoulder and gave him an embarrassed awkward smile. "What a great start, being labelled as the 'New Girl'". Thankfully, it was a short briefing and there was a break. I scrambled off quickly, looking for familiar faces. 

While I was looking for my friends, I ran into the curly-haired boy. He smiled and said, "Hi you're Amelyn right? I'm Dan." I was very surprised that he knew my name, so I said, "Hi, yes! Nice to meet you!" and shook his hand. He explained that one of the guys in the group that I was from in the previous class, used to be his Secondary school classmate. I remembered feeling relieved while he introduced me to the friends he've made in the new class. 

We hung out as a group, had lunch, group projects, stayed behind; all 5 of us together. The weekends too, from cycling, picnics, movie marathons into the wee hours of the morning. Dan and I got really close and we started going out separately, we shared secrets and stories from our past to present. We stayed up till 5-6am trying to complete never ending projects. We slept for barely 1-2 hours before heading to 9am classes. I knew he had my back and he knew I had his. I broke down a couple of times due to the stress I had from all the piling projects but he never once gave up on me. He guided and helped me throughout the final year projects. We made it, and it was time to celebrate with the December holidays.

We hung out even more, my Birthday followed by Christmas and the New Year. He was the best friend I never knew would have existed. Chinese New Year came by and my parents were out of town. He came over and I remembered him peeling off the skin of the oranges for me while we watched the TV. We went to the beach a lot, those were the moments we have our heart to heart talks. For hours, we laid by the sand till nightfall. We watched the stars while I laid on his chest. I broke the silence and asked him, "Are we too close? I don't want to ruin this great relationship we have." He said he was not uncomfortable and to just go with the flow. 

Year 2 of college came, but we were no longer in the same class. It was a very different year without him. He was in 2D Animation and I was in Fashion Design, we tried to meet up for lunch as much as we could. The cycle of sleepless nights, the tired blank stares into space... I was glad that he was still there. He was exactly what I needed during what seemed like the craziest and most exhausting time of my life. 

Somehow, among all the crazy classes and late night heart to heart talks, we fell in love. 4 years ago, on this day, you held my hand. I still fall in love with you every single day. Remembered the time when my sandals snapped, and you piggybacked me home without letting me get off your back till we were at my doorstep? I don't know how I had such crappy shoes but do you also remember when you gave me your slippers at school and took the train home barefooted? I mean, who would do that? Especially when we live in a society so judgmental and superficial. You have such a pure soul which makes me fall in love with you all over again, every single time. The way you save the snails from being crushed on the pavement to helping out everyone and anyone you can. Your creativity, your crazy talented drawing skills, the way you get along with my family and friends so very well, how you hang out with my dad for Muay Thai classes, the list goes on and on...

Ultimately, thank you for loving me as I am, for seeing the world with me, motivating me and most importantly; teaching me how to be equals in this relationship. From our biggest argument in 2014 back in the States, I'm happy to say we've only had 3 small arguments from then till now. Because of you, we are so strong together. I love you so much, my dearest Dan.

Beating the Bangkok heat with this go-to summer outfit which I am really loving. Trying out different ways to match these sneakers and I am thinking that they might just go with um, everything? And I must admit that whatever I'm wearing in this outfit is an essential, definitely my saviour for my 'nothing to wear'  days. Well, you can never have too many striped shirts or denim shorts or sneakers, right? ;)
